Flying can be a stressful time in anyone’s life, especially when you have absolutely no form of entertainment, resulting in you sitting in a chair, staring at the back of another chair, for 21 hours straight. If you happen to have an a smartphone or tablet on hand, and you’re flying on Southwest Airlines, you’ll now be able to enjoy free on-demand and live TV in-blight streaming service from Dish Network.
TV Flies Free is accessible through either the Dish Anywhere and Hopper Transfer applications on your smartphone or tablet. You’ll be able to access 13 live-streaming channels and over 50 episodes of a number of popular TV shows, and best of all, you won’t need to purchase a Wi-Fi pass nor will you need to be a Dish customer.
The TV Flies Free program is currently available on all of Southwest’s 400 Wi-Fi-enabled planes, although the only downside of this service is that you’ll need to bring your own smartphone or tablet onto the flight, although we’re sure you already carry at least one of those with you during your travels anyway.
